Mariner 50 Four stroke 1998

I'm having problems removing the lower unit,
manual sys to shift inft forward gear, undo the 4 bolts around the gearbox plus the one under the Trim tam then remove.....

but when i do this the gearbox only drop's aboit 1/4" then something is stopping it.

i'm guessing it's the gear selector rod but the manual does not mention this at all.

The rod is held in place at the powerhead end by a pin ( see pic ) but access to this pin is really tight and i cannot seem to push it either way.

can somone confirm this is what is stopping the gearbox coming off and that i do have to remove this pin to do so...

also any tips on moving the pin would be great...

thanks very much
